Need Help with Swap

Okay So I am still new here and still learning but have a few questions so I can start getting my parts together for this build.

I am going from an 01 SPI to 00 Zetec and I am going to tear the zetec apart and rebuild the bottom end so it will be ready for a turbo set-up. Here's my situation. I have a guy here in town that has a lot of focus parts he is trying to get rid of and is willing to give a 2000 zetec motor at no charge, however it has no accessories with it.

Here is what I have come up with parts-wise from what I need off of a donor zetec car I found at the salvage yard:
-alternator
-PS pump (and lines?)
-ECU and wiring harness from fuse box back to the fuel pump
-transmission flexplate (i have read that the auto trans from spi to zetec is the same but the flex plate is different)
-A/C lines ( I have read the Compressor is the same but just just flipped upside-down but the lines were different- is this right?)

Am I missing anything? Unfortunately I can not just buy a donor car and pull everything out at the house as my space is limited right now and this build will probably take a little while. The neighbors would kill me if i had a beater laying in the driveway for an extended amount of time.

Also, The donor car at the salvage yard did not have a key in it so can i just have my current key prgrammed to work with the new ECU? Wasn't 100% sure on this as the info in some of the threads I have read seemed a little sketchy.

I am hoping to go to the salvage this weekend so help me out guys! Thanks!

Thanks, however -once again- im new here- so do i need to have a ford dealer program this key for me? What do I have to do to get this key programmed? Do you have any info for me if I may be missing anything as far as parts for this swap? Thanks.

Bump. Can anyone let me know if I am forgetting anything or if I am good with what I have listed?

Take the vin number off the donor car and get the ignition pin number to have Ford program the key. The bracket on the passenger side engine mount is different between the Zetec and the SPI, you will need that too.

Really? How long ago was it that you lived here? Do you have family here?
